Union of Orthodox Journalists – June 2016

During the proceedings of the Council on Crete there arose disagreements concerning the document “Relations of the Orthodox Church with the rest of the Christian World,” reportsRomfea.

“We have much to do. It’s possible that this text won’t pass. In any case, we’ll бе examining it throughout the whole day,” stated one of the hierarchs participating in the Council.

The primates and hierarchs of the Orthodox Churches discussed the text “Relations of the Orthodox Church with the rest of the Christian World” from the morning. According to the agency’s report, there are a number of views on thе question, and thus the morning’s session could not arrive at a consensus.

The work of the Holy and Great Council under the chairmanship of Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople continues in Kolymbari on Crete.
